Is there any way to change screensaver time settings? There is only option turn on screensaver after 1 minute or more. Is there any way how to add 30 seconds option? Thanks

The time is kept in guisettings.xml in the userdata folder... Looks like only full seconds are allowed, but you play around with micro seconds or decimal fractions to see what could be.

<screensaver>
<mode>screensaver.xbmc.builtin.slideshow</mode>
<preview></preview>
<settings></settings>
<time>6</time>
<usedimonpause>true</usedimonpause>
<usemusicvisinstead>true</usemusicvisinstead>
</screensaver>

I tried to change time value, but it goes always back to 1 - 60 value. Undecided
